Broker's Comments

This Laurent Giles designed long keeled, heavy yacht makes a great passage maker. Another Salar 40 left Gibraltar about a year ago bound for Australia.

This particular boat had its engine replaced in 2000 and since then the engine has run just 947 hours. The engine runs sweetly.

This boat's interior will need attention and will give any new owner the opportunity to stamp his character on it.

The details of this Salar 40 for sale are subject to contract.
